Hey guys...got a iPhone 4 32GB factory unlocked version on Thursday. This is after using a 32gig 3GS for many months. So far so good. Ordered the Otter Box Defender case which should be on its way. It makes the phone a little 'bulky' but nothing I've used protects a phone better. Differences from the 3GS:
a) the display is better but not that much better (when compared with the 3gs as Apple's marketing talk would make it out to be
b) Phone is more responsive.
c) Havent experienced the death grip so far...further usage would tell.

Transfered all my apps, contact and settings from a backup to the new phone. Restore works like a charm!

Cheers!

Congrats on the new buy. The case indeed makes it look bulky. Unlike 3gs which was more curvy and rounded, this is more rectangle based which doesn't hide the bulk.

I agree with you on the display. Its all marketing talk. Did you try multi-tasking? If yes, did you find any lag?

Did the bars on phone went down a notch or two when u held the death grip? Its around 3/4 way from the top. You can't exactly get it but you have to try to get that grip and then see the signal bars dance up and down

Thanks Chevelle. Funnily I havent been using the phone for the past 2 days. It is slim and I am worried it will slip outa my hands. Waiting for the case to arrive from the US before I give it a workout. What I posted above were my initial impressions. I will come back with a few more observations after I begin using the phone to the max.

Cheers!

Hey where did you buy it from and how much you paid.

I have been running 4.1 GM OS for last few days and it indeed has brought back the speed to the puny 3G, so a must upgrade when it comes out on 8th US time

Default Should i be worried?

Guys, Here is a rumor or true news

Death Grip Fixed: Mexican Carrier Exec

BottomLine: It says from sept 30, white version is coming, which will solve the death grip. I have 30 days full refund period still active. Does it make sense to return the current one and wait?

Will 4.1 solve this issue? Apple was suppose to launch a software upgrade. What happened of it?

Any ideas?

Yes that rumor has be floating around for last week or two, especially since the free bumper offer is till Oct. People are speculating that apple will fix it with a new antenna.

4.1 will not fix the issue, since its NOT a software issue. If you want to try you can download the GM version floating around or wait till Sep 8th for apple to make it available over iTunes.

Apple has stated that they are gonna give free bumper or case to those who have bought iphone 4 in june, july, aug, sept months. The offer is valid till Sept 30. Now why would they do this case program till Sept 30? I think they are gonna change some hardware from phones manufactured after october which will solve the issue. I wonder why did they launch it in first place when it had such a serious issue. Competition from Android phones?

I would rather wait for 4.1 to be available over iTunes. Don't wanna mess up the Apple's warranty. As such they are head-strong in that department.

Upgrade the 4 to 4.1 today. It was a smooth installation. Haven't yet tested the 3G, so don't know if any improvements is there. Used multi-tasking and it is good to have feature. Nothing extra ordinary. Will try HDR soon. Digital zoom -5x is now included. Felt the camera start up time is still long. Takes too much time to start, by then some on-the spot shots are missed. C905 is better in that regards, its fast.

I have used Nokia's messaging centre on the N96 & N97 + the iPhone 3GS with my company's Exch server. The Apple solution is way better and more elegant.

Cheers!
